How is lumpwood made, and how do you turn the blocks of logs into BBQ lumpwood?

In short, it starts by sourcing hardwood from responsibly managed forests and then transforming the logs into pure carbon through controlled heating and carbonization, resulting in a natural and flavorful fuel for BBQ cooking.

A lumpwood that's been and seen places.

Frequently asked questions

Learn more about our lumpwood

Lumpwood charcoal is a type of charcoal made by burning hardwood logs in the absence of oxygen, resulting in pure carbon chunks. Unlike briquettes, which are compressed charcoal dust and additives, lumpwood charcoal is all-natural and contains no fillers or chemicals.

It burns hotter and faster than briquettes, with a cleaner smoke profile and a more authentic wood flavour.

To light lumpwood charcoal effectively, use a chimney starter filled with charcoal and place newspaper or natural firelighters underneath. Light the newspaper or firelighters, and the heat will quickly ignite the charcoal. Once the charcoal is glowing red and covered with ash, carefully pour it into your grill or smoker.

Avoid using lighter fluid, as it can impart a chemical taste to your food.

Lumpwood charcoal is excellent for grilling a wide range of foods, including steaks, burgers, poultry, seafood, and vegetables. Its high heat output and natural wood flavour complement these foods perfectly.

For longer cooking times and smoky flavours, lumpwood charcoal is also excellent for smoking meats like ribs, brisket, and pork shoulder.

Temperature control with lumpwood charcoal is achieved by adjusting the airflow in your grill or smoker. Open the vents for higher temperatures and close them partially for lower temperatures.

You can also create indirect heat zones by stacking charcoal on one side of the grill and placing food on the other. Adding or removing charcoal as needed will also help regulate the temperature.

Many producers of lumpwood charcoal prioritize sustainable sourcing practices by using responsibly managed forests or reclaimed wood from other industries. Look for certifications such as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or Rainforest Alliance to ensure that your lumpwood charcoal comes from sustainable sources.

Additionally, lumpwood charcoal produces less ash and fewer emissions than briquettes, making it a cleaner and more environmentally friendly option for outdoor cooking.
